Arrieta brought a three-start winless streak to an end Friday, despite having allowed just two runs in his previous two outings. He has a 7-4 record and 2.53 ERA in 124 1/3 innings this season, heading into his start against the Reds Thursday.

Turner is a candidate to start in Edwin Jackson's spot in the rotation Tuesday, after Jackson was placed on the disabled list this week. Turner has not started since early August when the Cubs acquired him, but he told MLB.com he would be ready if called on.
"Definitely," he said. "I was starting at the beginning of the month. I don't think I'd have any problem going five, and depending on how stressful the innings were, getting back up and down wouldn't be a problem."
Turner has made 12 of his 22 appearances this season as a starter, carrying a 5.77 ERA in 82 2/3 innings overall.
